Premature Postgame

During the primary, one of the things I found the most frustrating was the argument made my some, implicitly and explicitly, that Obama just Could. Not. Win. The Clinton campaign made it, as did many Clinton supporters. I don't like electability arguments generally, and I also couldn't see how it was in any way obvious that Obama would have more problems than Clinton in that area. People are free to have opinions on such matters, of course, but I was surprised at the degree of certainty which some people had about the subject.

On Tuesday we'll see!
